Where were YOU on that fateful day?
When the news of 9/11 hit the news airwaves,
I remember it well as I sat there,
As a call centre consultant
On an Ansett Airlines office chair.
I was working the night shift,
as news came flashing in.
I felt as though the whole world had suddenly dimmed.
The calls came rushing into the centre,
from families far and wide in great distress.
Dreading that loved ones could be entangled,
In that horrific tragic mess.
I was shocked, horrified and aghast,
holding on to the calls, as they came rushing fast.
Trying to soothe Moms, Dads, Daughters and Sons.
hoping to reassure them their family weren’t the ones.
Who had been lost on ‘T h a t shocking D a y’
praying that their loved ones would return safely and be okay.
Yes, I remember well,
Where I was on
“T h a t D a y”

Memorial Tear Drop
The 9/11 Memorial “Tear Drop”
Sit’s directly across from NYC, in Bayonne New Jersey, just the other side of the Statue of Liberty, yet we hear nothing about it. This absolutely beautiful, 100 ft. tall monument was gifted to the people of the United States by the people of Russia in 2006, in memory of all those who lost their lives on that fateful day, September 11, 2001.
The breaking in the cracked facade forms the shape of the two towers. The giant suspended tear drop signifies the tears of the entire world that day.
Maybe it’s something that needs to be known, starting today.
May We NEVER Forget!
